Infestation of Bugs on Indoor Basil and Chives
Help! I have two basil plants and a chive plant growing in a window box in my kitchen. I use an 100W fluorescent light bulb to give them light when there is no sun. Now they are being attacked by tiny winged black bugs. I cannot tell if they are eating the basil or not. They do not seem to be on the leaves much, but they crawl all over the soil and fly around. I can't tell if they are damaging my plants, but some of the leaves are getting brown spots. I have tried Ecosmart organic garden insect killer, but it doesn't seem to be working. Can anyone help me? I need to kill the bugs in a way that will still allow me to use the leaves for cooking. I took some pics but I don't know how to post them.
